So, I am on my way to get the car washed today and I drive by a house with a John McCain for President yard sign. However, this particular sign read: "Another Democrat for McCain".

Next to that particular sign was a gigantic Steve Gottwalt sign.

To the folks that live at this particular residence, I call BULLSHIT! No self respecting Democrat who believed in liberal, progressive, or even blue dog principles would be supporting Steve Gottwalt. While John McCain may have a couple centrist positions, Gottwalt is a lap dog of the ultra right wing of the Republican Party. Either you haven't studied enough about the candidates you are supporting or you were never really a Democrat to begin with.

    I'm sure they were Catholics first, Democrats second. They and the Chamber of Commerce are Gottwalt's base. Around here being perceived as a "good Catholic" trumps intelligence every time.

    Gottwalt is a lap dog of the ultra right wing of the Republican Party.

    Explain, then, how he's got a great working relationship with Tom Huntley, who chairs the Health Care and Human Services Finance Division in the House.

    Explain yourself in the context of Mr. Gottwalt working with John Marty, one of the most unashamedly liberal senators in St. Paul, on Justin's Bill.

    Explain yourself in the context of Rep. Gottwalt voting against the "ultra right wing" on the Freedom To Breathe Act.

    Explain yourself in the context that John & Linda Peck are voting for Rep. Gottwalt.

    Frankly, I'd say that your calling out "bullshit" is just that. It's nothing but bullshit.
